Affairs between cricketers and Bollywood celebs are nothing new. From Sharmila Tagore and Nawab Pataudi to Amrita Singh and Ravi Shastri and the latest Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli, there have been innumerable affairs and flings. While some like Sourav Ganguly and Nagma did not turn into a long-lasting marriage, the likes of Sangeeta Bijlani and Azharuddin did enjoy marital bliss for some time. The hottest pair now to hit the headlines in this group is that of KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty.
Even during the lockdown, their banter has kept rumours and speculations circulating. But many times fans are surprised when things between KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty do not seem to be in harmony.
When Athiya Cropped Rahul’s Photo
The couple made their affair almost official when the daughter of Suniel Shetty shared her picture with Rahul on her Instagram account calling him “My Person” on his birthday. She even shared a few pictures of their holidays last year with few friends. It triggered off rumours that the actress was missing Rahul amid lockdown as they were forced to stay apart.
Earlier Athiya shared a photograph of herself in an oversized shirt that seemed to belong to Rahul and just a few days ago she posted yet another picture of herself in a sweatshirt which earlier Rahul was spotted wearing. So if the two can share their shirts, fans believed that it must be very close between them.
But a couple of days ago when Athiya yet again shared a picture cropping the older one that showed Rahul with her, fans wondered why did the actress felt like keeping her rumoured beau out of the post. Was something wrong in their relationship?
Athiya Calls Rahul Her Ludo Partner
When Athiya shared a throwback picture of herself with Rahul albeit cropping the picture of the cricketer from the post, Ritik Bhasin enquired about the other person in the picture. Bhasin is a businessman and is a common friend of both Athiya and Rahul. The actress answered, ”Someone I beat at Ludo.” Importantly, in her message for the post, Athiya says, “Feels like a dream ago.” Has the rumoured couple drifted apart?
Now everyone is wondering what Athiya wants to suggest by cropping Rahul’s picture from her post when all the time in the past few weeks she has been showing how close they are to each other through her posts.
